Corriere della Sera (Gianluca Piacentini) The probable sale of Kostas Manolas to Zenit St Petersburg – there is still some distance between Roma’s demands (€40 million) and the Russian club’s offer (€30 million plus bonuses), but the two parties will meet again in the coming days – means that the Giallorossi defence will have to be overhauled again in preparation for next year.
Bruno Peres spoke to pagineromaniste.com at the ‘Briswa – The Ball Rolls in the Same Way for All’ event on Monday. Among his responses he admitted that he hasn’t been satisfied with his first season at Roma, and hopes that Juventus lose the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
After joining Roma to great excitement last summer, Bruno Peres’ first season with the Giallorossi has been a major disappointment and is now expected to leave the club in the next transfer window. Speaking to Pagine Romaniste, however, Peres’ agent Bernardo Silva denied that the full back has already been sounded out by other clubs over a move.
Tuttosport (Stefano Carina) There’s a saying in Brazil, which goes: “Os paulistas sabem viver, o resto do mundo vive sem samber“, which roughly translates as “Paulistas [people from Sao Paulo] know how to live, the rest of the world live without knowing it.” You just have to look at Bruno Peres, a Paulista himself, when he has a ball at his feet to realise how important this saying is to him. The Giallorossi #13 plays in the same way as he lives: with a smile on his face, and – even off the pitch – he’s rarely seen without that smile.
